Never heard of a Kayak/SUP Combo, or a SUP-YAK? If you are new to stand up paddling or if you have spent a long day on the water, you might find it to be easier to spend some time sitting down on your board.
These hybrid Stand Up Paddleboards are relatively new to the market and they pack double the value into a SUP Board. They all will include a kayak seat and kayak paddle with purchase. Many will also include a foot rest to make them very capable for recreational lake and river paddling.
These boards are usually 11′ or longer, and they are also very stable. All kayak/sup combo boards that we have tested this year are 6″ thick and did not put the tester in the water using the manufacturer provided seat. Upgrading to a frame seat will let you sit higher off the board and is great when used for fishing. This will also make the board a bit more tippy at times.
They are a great way to share some time on the board with a little one, or a furry friend. The Tahe 11’6 SUP-YAK Kayak/SUP Combo is suited for 2 adult paddlers.
You might wonder if the “kayak version” of these boards will meet your needs when used as a kayak only for a while. During the season, we will be testing them out in a variety of paddling situations. On the lake, in a river, on the beach, touring, and more. We will be posting updates on this blog.
We can cosign them for recreational lake use. Read about our experience AG Cascade 11 SUP.
